Greetings! I'm looking to build a 6' diameter, 4' deep outdoor cedar hot tub. Clear cedar dimensional lumber is EXPENSIVE, so I was considering grabbing decking from places like home depot over time until I accumulate enough basically clear lengths for the staves. My concern is about the fact that decking is generally 1" thick, while dim lumber is 1.5". I am wondering if anyone has tried this? Could it simply be a matter if adding a couple more steel bands around the tub to support the staves, or will this material just flex too much?
